Spinal Cord Injuries
The Indiana Court of Appeals upheld a jury verdict in favor of a young man injured in a diving accident on Lake Shafer. The defendant corporation had placed a dredge pipe in a channel just off of the dock of the young man’s parents’ lake home. The pipe was not properly marked with buoys and could not be seen from the dock.
When the young man dove off of the dock, he struck his head on the pipe and fractured three vertebrae in his neck, rendering him partially quadripilegic. Our investigator took aerial photographs of the location immediately after the incident to demonstrate that there were no markings indicating the presence of a pipe. After obtaining a successful verdict in favor of our client at trial, the defendant corporation appealed the verdict and raised multiple issues for the Indiana Court of Appeals to consider. The Court of Appeals found in favor of the injured young man on all issues and affirmed the jury’s verdict.
